I don't understand why you didn't just photograph the actual books in your collection?

If it was my site, I'd probably lose the main banner with the Movie imagery off the front page. It is quite sluggish and glitchy, plus.... I imagine that also potentially poses some copyright issues. I guess it depends on what you are trying to achieve with the site, but I personally find unnecessary motion and panning, etc, on web pages irritating. I'd much rather have a simple, clean interface. I'd say focus on the real content, more than the fluffy whizz-bang stuff that people might only look at once.

Stu, I don't really follow your comments about content; surely these Super Deluxe editions are just going to have the same content as the standard release? They're never going to add any special content; all you're going to get is fine binding (you'd hope) & a CT/artist signature(s). Do you just mean you want to wait & see what the B&L content actually is?

No, I'm not expecting any additional content in an SD vs in a standard edition - I mean that if the content of all the editions is essentially recycled (bar the Alan Lee illustrations, I guess), I won't personally value the book enough to have a Super Deluxe edition of it. I don't mind being a victim of marketing to some extent, but I don't have a good feeling about B&L as yet, and splashing 15 pounds on some content I already have with a new cover is obviously a different siutation than spending 350 pounds on that same content.

I'd be interested if the quality, price, production location, limitatation and content were right. I'm not sure I'd be interested in £350 / 500 copies, especially if the content is really just an aggregation of already published material with a bit of connecting filler (which may or may not be the case).

I still think the CoH SD is a wonderful book, but it was overpriced. S&G was flawed, but still has merit, though overpriced and FAR too many copies.

Don't worry about it. Explore away. Thread resurrection is fine by me :)

I think I've moved 4 times since that thread started, including once interstate, and once across the Tasman sea.
